Toe Jazz - toe socks in progress


This is what I am working on. Toe Jazz, pattern by Fiber Trends. Did I say I LOVE knitting socks? I am knitting these with KnitPicks' Simple Stripes, color Sunset. The colors are brighter than I thought. I guess that's the risk you take when you order online without getting a yarn sampler first. But, I'm going to wear them anyway! (Yes, they are for me.) This is my first time using self-striping yarn. I was worried how it would turn out with the cable twists in the pattern. I think it turned out OK. I can't wait to get to the part where I have to divide the big toe from the rest of the toes. Let's hope that will go well.

I will post the finished project with them on the feet. I know, I know. I promised a hat-on-the-head picture for the brioche hat and that hasn't happened. Can I blame it on the partner? hehe

Here's a virtual bouquet for a house warming!

Thanks guys! The left sock is almost done. Let's hope it fits! I will put it on as soon as it's done, take a picture and post it on the blog.

Exciting, exciting! OK, time to calm down and be meditative. :-)
